Involving the transformation of the city’s first power station –Silahtaraga Power Plant- into a cultural and educational center, santralistanbul aims to be a new source of energy for production and distribution of art and knowledge through a program of collaborative and interdisciplinary projects and activities. ‘Light, Illumination & Electricity ’, supported by Anna Lindh Foundation and organized in collaboration with The Townhouse Gallery of Contemporary Art (Cairo), ZINC – ECM de la Friche Belle de Mai (Marseille), NOMAD (Istanbul) and SCCA (Ljubljana), is the first platform for such collaborative work and will bring artists together from Beirut, Istanbul, Paris, Ljubljana, Cairo, and Leipzig to work together in Istanbul during the entire duration of the project. In the mean time, The Townhouse Gallery of Contemporary Art hosts an artist from Turkey in Cairo. The project's foundation is based on the vague but inspiring substances of electricity and light. Therefore, the energy museum and this specific site of santralistanbul provide multilayered inputs for an accumulation of ideas and praxis. Accordingly, the residence project involves a series of talks and workshops along with the open studio exhibition.
